Volkswagen is grooving back to the future.
The automaker has revealed the ID. Buzz minivan that will be going on sale in the U.S. next year.
The all-electric vehicle’s design was heavily inspired by the classic VW Microbus.
Two-tone paint combinations will be offered for even more of a retro touch.

The ID. Buzz is already available in Europe, but the American market version is longer and has three rows of seats.
It’s still about a foot shorter than a Chrysler Pacifica but has a longer wheelbase that helps create a roomy passenger compartment.

The second and third row seats fold flat, and the third row can be removed completely.
The ID. Buzz will come standard with a 282-horsepower rear-wheel-drive powertrain, and a 330-horsepower dual-motor all-wheel-drive version will be optional.
The cargo area can be expanded by removing the third row of seats. (VW)
Volkswagen hasn’t announced the official driving range, but its 91 kilowatt-hour battery pack is smaller than those used in some electric compact SUVs and it will likely be around 260 miles with rear-wheel-drive and 252 miles with all-wheel-drive, according to Car and Driver.
